Hi Bees! I’ve been perusing Etsy for invitations, and have saved a whole bunch of options. I’m so curious to hear what you think!
Some info on our wedding… We’re getting married at a country club in July. The bridesmaids are wearing long chiffon gowns, and the groomsmen are wearing black tuxes. Our main colors are lavender with a touch of blush pink.
Okay, vote away! And feel free to be honest… My sister and MOH thinks most of these “are too 1970s.” Haha!
1. Heart invitation with lavender stripes.
2. Lavender flower.
3. Cream and purple flowers.

@FutureMrsHarris2014: i would rank those #3, #1, #2. I think they’re nice, not 1970’s at all.

Thank you! I just realized that I left out the 1970s ones…

1, 4 & 5 are pretty but look a bit to casual for what you described. I like the 2 and 3.

@AlwaysSunny: Thank you… that’s what I’m curious about. I seem to gravitate towards vintage and rustic designs, but I’m not sure they match with our wedding. Thanks for your input!

@FutureMrsHarris2014: I’m personally not a big fan of the floral invites that are super trendy at the moment, they’re not my taste. BUT if you’re having a country chic wedding they are very fitting. I like #3 the best.

@FutureMrsHarris2014: To avoid the dissapointment I experienced, initiate a successful conversation, with the designer, through Etsy messaging, before deciding on a specific invitation.
I contacted two designers, whose invitations I fell in love with TWICE (a month apart) and neither of them responded. It was especially frustrating because one designer had completed my sister’s inviations 8 months before. Luckily two other designers did respond and we chose one of them.

I think #3 is the prettiest and best choice for the overall feel of your wedding (: Personally, I love the floral ones (#4 & #5), but I agree with PPs that they don’t fit a wedding in a more formal setting.

I love the white invitation with floral wreath! 🙂

I love them all. Voted for number two

To me, number 4 & 5 are a bit too girly due to the flowers.
I like the more subtle flowers in #3.
I also like #1 and 2, but don’t think they are all that “wedding-y”.
